Philippa Jackson001

After completing her first degree at Durham University, Philippa held a research assistant post at the Brain, Performance and Nutrition Research Centre (BPNRC) and was later awarded a PhD studentship which she completed in 2010. Her PhD, supervised by Prof David Kennedy, Prof Andrew Scholey and Dr Jonothan Reay, investigated the effects of dietary omega-3 fatty acids on cognitive function in healthy children and adults. Following her PhD, Philippa was awarded a postdoctoral fellowship to continue her investigation of the effects of DHA, an omega-3 fatty acid, on cognitive function and cerebral blood flow in older adults. She is now the Associate Director of the BPNRC, leads the fatty acid research group and is also principal or co-investigator for a number of industry funded projects with a focus on novel nutritional interventions.
